Elderly Patrons End Fight With NYC Eatery


A group of patrons has reached an agreement with a McDonald’s in Queens to avoid the restaurant during busy lunch hours, The New York Times reported. The eatery’s owner had complained that the elderly Koreans spent all day nursing one cup of coffee. The owner said the restaurant was losing business because customers couldn’t find seats. The group met with the owner on Sunday in the office of Assemblyman Ron Kim and agreed that members of the group could sit at the restaurant for as long as they wanted except during the hours of 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The owner agreed to post signs in Korean and Chinese explaining the policy.
